A Breakdown on the Highway Was Only the Beginning

What a strange trip it was

After midnight, our car died outside of Lost Hills on Highway 5.

My boyfriend, Steve pulled the sputtering car off the road and parked; we’d have to wait until morning to get help. I wanted to scream or hit something but knew that would only make things worse.
